Here comes Santa Claus!

24

December

One of the most joyful discoveries for children at Christmas is that moment when they find out they can actually watch Santa Claus fly around the world toward them as they follow him on the official NORAD Santa Tracker site. In the olden days, you were limited to updates by the TV weather guy, showing a little red dot (Rudolph!) flying over Mongolia.

Now NORAD features Santa and his reindeer flying across images of Earth along with apps and videos and even Twitter feeds.

But now NORAD isn't the only one watching Santa. Google has its own Santa Tracking Dashboard. It features a slightly southern trek for Santa, but is roughly parallel to the NORAD Santa. It also offers a chance for you to send a personalized recorded Santa message via phone or email to that special someone on your list.

We also spied this fun video of Santa getting ready to take off on his journey around the world. Enjoy!
